I am 17 yrs old and I am curious as to what would be in my best interest for treating my acne related issues. My acne is very light and pretty much under control now. I seem to break-out moreso during hormonal cycles in which my skin gets very oily (I get white heads and a couple cysts). Although, even after my break-outs have surpassed, white heads under my nose, cheeks and chin persists. Fortunately, they are not as bad as they once were. Some of it has left very superficial atrophic scars.

Certainly, Retin A, benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acid peels would be good starting points for treatment for you.
